Re: After Winterizing: Fire Up and Go?

Update--

When I fired it on Saturday for the first time, it gave off some pretty black smoke for about 30 seconds, and I had to give it some throttle to keep it turning, but then it settled down into its usual old self. Motored the ~10 miles to my mooring (no wind) and it ran flawless. I love this engine.

Wish I had time to take a diesel engine course. Maybe in my next lifetime. I think a book might have to suffice for now, and I do plan to do the winterization myself at the end of this season.
